from Yeshiva Beth Yehuda are
boarding buses for a trip to the
Oak Park library. A group of
Hadassah members are return-
ing from a day's outing, while a
van is transporting some senior
adults to a program at Temple Is-
rael in West Bloomfield.
At the same time, disabled
adults at the New Horizons re-
habilitation center in Novi are
getting ready to take the buses
back to their homes in Milford,
South Lyon and the surrounding
areas.
The buses are rolling, and as
the wheels turn, the. Jewish
community and the larger one it
is part of are better for it. ❑

LIFE IN ISRAEL

Israeli Attorneys Face
Overcrowded Profession

BY CARL ALPERT

Special to The Jewish News

Haifa — One of the most
popular television programs in
Israel is "Paper Chase," the
American series about students
at law school. The program's
vast following may possibly exp-
lain the fact that this year there
were 5,800 applications for ad-
mission to Israeli law schools, of
which only 350 were accepted!
Whereas the country's best
high schools systematically en-
courage students to prepare for
careers in engineering, technol-
ogy or science, there is abso-
lutely no encouragement to go
into the legal profession, yet
students register in droves for
the study of law. Fortunately,
most are turned aside.
The Bar Association records
that there are now 8,500
lawyers in Israel, of which 2,000
are not practicing at all. There
appears to be work for all of
them. The Israelis are a highly
litigatious people. In 1983 no
less than 615,892 court files
were opened. In proportion to
population, and eliminating
children, this means that one
out of every three adult Israelis
was in that year involved in

program: the skyrocketing costs
of liability insurance.
Although UHS boasts a safe
driving record with few claims,
insurance costs in general are es-
calating at a rapid rate. It's not
unusual, says Goldstein, to re-
ceive a threefold increase in rates
in one year. According to sources
at the Jewish Welfare Federa-
tion, the question of liability in-
surance is the most serious chal-
lenge to the system's future. And
it appears that no final decisions
have been made yet to address
the problem.
But for the time being, the
buses continue to roll. It is late
afternoon now and youngsters

Yet not all the law graduates
practice that profession. Many
go into business, where they
find their legal training useful;
others enter banking, public '-
administration or related fields.
The study of law is a four-
year program in Israel, directly
following high school, though
three years in the armed torces
usually intervene. The law
schools are located at the Heb-
rew University, Tel Aviv Uni-
versity, and Bar-Ilan, though
there is now talk of opening
another school at either Haifa or
Ben-Gurion University. Tel
Aviv also offers an evening
program lasting five years.
There is also a proposal to meet
the student demand by estab-
_ lishing a private evening law
school.
The major limiting factors
today are budgetary and per-
sonnel; In the drEistic university
budget cutting, the law schools
have been regarded as theinost
expendable 'from, the point - of
view of the national economy.
As for teaching staff, it has been
difficult to retain top-level per
sonnel when the. challengeo,4n,d,—
